    Hayward pool light question

    It is very possible you could use the Amerilite but I would contact Inyo Pools first to see. They also have a line of lights called Pureline that may work

    Wimpy spa jets

    It really depends on the impeller hp. You can go with a larger hp motor but you will get the flow rate of the impeller that is installed. The confusing part is whether the Hp on the pumps is full-rated or up rated. Look for the service factor on the motors to find out what they are. Also if...
